Canada Water Cafe
We are located right outside Canada Water Station in London SE16.
Homemade lasagne with organic minced beef and Italian mixed herbs
Pasta al Forno
Oven baked gnocchetti pasta with spinach, béchamel, scamorza and parmesan
Aperol Spritz / Campari Spritz
The only thing that I would change is that a number of delivery drivers kept coming in and leaning on our table/putting their bags on the other end. The waiter came to stop one of them but it happened a few times
Very very good food!
The staff is very attentive and the lasagna and panesu are delicious!
Delicious food & some lovely Christmas menu offerings too. Nice cocktails but don’t be afraid to minimise the list to keep it all ‘in season’!
Great service, great food
A lovely dinner and cocktails.
The food was delicious and the service was excellent.
This is a great neighbourhood Italian. Informal, stylish with good food & service. Also dog friendly. Always worth going to and worthy of our support in these testing times.
Perfect as always, the best restaurant in Canada Water
We love Canada Water Cafe, a local treat with lovely staff and delicious food!
Lovely dining experience, good food and friendly staff :) Will be back.
Really friendly place. Lovely atmosphere. Great service. Great selection of fresh food. Delicious wine. Feels very safe and clean, and a joy to do something normal! Highly recommend.
Came for dinner with our son- friendly staff, good selection of items on the menu- yummy pizza - would happily come again
Nice atmosphere, good food and great service ! And very dog friendly !
I went there a year ago and it was terrible food and very poor service. They have improved massively.
Great food and the staff are always so helpful and friendly. Highly recommended!
Great local place! Also amazing food options, love the lasagna
Amazing food & service even with help to eat out!
Only thing the door was open so it was cold
Lovely dinner midweek. Fresh and tasty food. Will visit again.
Really enjoyed it, the food was amazing and the staff friendly
Great local Italian restaurant .My wife and I have been its clients since soon after it opened
Birthday treat! amazing food, friendly and welcoming staff.
Lovely little place which with a few tweaks could be oustanding.
I am allergic to gluten and having been to The Canada Water Cafe three times recently feel it's quite disappointing that despite thier menu stating they do, the have not once had a gluten free bread or pasta option. The fact they are next door to a sainsbury local and could easily buy one loaf and freeze it seems to be such a simple fix that would make a huge difference to customers like myself that miss out on so much of the menu due to this.
My friends and I all felt the food was very underseasoned, and no dressing on the salads and generally a bit bland and dry. A bit more salt, but pepper, a bit lemon, a bit olive oil and the good would be great. Again, these are really small things that could be fixed in two minutes but would completely change the taste of the food and make this place the perfect neighbourhood eatery.
Staff are lovely, and but a little bit over run, the restaurant was about 70% full but felt like they needed one more server as it was very difficult to get thier attention. The servers they did have working on the were great though.
Really do love this place, but just wish they put about 20% more effort into the flavour and texture of the food and that they had more GF options.
Very friendly and accommodating staff. Good food as always.
It’s been nice to have early dinner in Canada Water cafe. Pasta was delicious, salade with chicken was alright too, the wine was just exquisite. Service was excellent.
Great service. Very friendly staff and great atmosphere. Social distancing was done very well and very spacious. Highly recommended!
My issues were the white wine & soft drinks I got weren't cold enough, especially in the recent heatwave, but they were chilled i.e. they hadn't been chilled long enough before serving. I was told the fridges were having trouble coping.........
The king prawns I had were tasty BUT the squid ink tagliolini itself was too bland and the excellent seafood bisque didn't coat the pasta very well.
The affogato was the best dish because it arrived in it's component parts for yourself to pour over the coffee to taste. Great for presentation too!
I've had takeaway coffee & sweet treats so I know they generally do good food plus it's close to home.
It’s a but packed and hard to remain social distancing between tables. Food are amazing as usual but there are less options than it had before. Staff are always nice and friendly.
good family cafe/restaurant - we often go there for a nice easy meal. bread/pasta/pizza is really great. friendly staff.
Lovely pizzas, nice vibe and good value.
Hope we will return.

Great food and service. We love Canada Water cafe and it was great to enjoy the Eat our £10 off
Love this place. Food is always really good and service is excellent! Love coming every time.
Great food at this group of restaurants. Fresh and delicious ingredients. Can be more expensive than others, but with the eat out to help out offer, it was good value. The COVID measures were okay, but felt that we were a bit too near other diners at one point and the staff weren't wearing masks/face shields. Other diners were sat at tables that hadn't been cleaned down before they were shown there.
Very fine Italian food and excellent value as always.
I am a local in Canada Water area and I go here all the time either for breakfast, lunch or dinner! The prices are reasonable, the food is fantastic and the staff are always friendly and give great customer service. While I enjoyed my visit this time as always, I was very shocked to see that the waiters were not wearing masks due to COVID-19. This should be the minimum that the cafe should do to stop the spread of the virus. I didn't see any wiping down of tables properly either. The management should ensure all employees wear a mask when working as this is a standard practice for all restaurants re-opening in 2020.
Beautiful lasagne and garlic bread finished with a delightful panacotta 👌🏽
Such a cosy place with a lovey atmosphere. The food & wine is amazing and the staff are really friendly.
Really great service throughout. Tried the tomato and salmon pasta which wasn't my favourite ever, but I know other dishes are incredible (particularly the bruschetta!)
Very quiet and Covid friendly
Love this place. Very nice place to eat and great food
Love this place. The food is fantastic as is the service. Very relaxing.
